I don't want to be that guy... but, should have updated their engine, polished the games a tad more and inovated their choice mechanics with each iteration. Taking on so much probably made this an impossible task.

You're the most 90's person I've ever known. I literally just now realized that everything you do - not just some memes but all memes and every image you've ever posted, is 90's themed. Your mindset is 90's based. What happened to you? Are you depressed and now trying to recapture your childhood? Are you ok?

Not sure if joking...There's a lack of tact to these questions that's difficult to ignore. It appears you're posing them to antagonize me. Every image and all memes? I've posted stuff from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, and 10's, with the last 3 time periods being used the most often. You're ignorant to my posting history, which is understandable given you only see parts of it. Nothing happened to me. I'm not depressed. I wasn't a child for most of the 90's. I'm OK.

Don't you fucking change.

I like your posts a lot.



This is pretty sad and awful for all the people who've lost their jobs. I don't mean to downplay that, but IMO Telltale bit way more than it could chew by picking up so many projects instead of focusing on maintaining the quality that made them famous with the first season of the walking dead. There's some real talent in this company, but I feel like it was just spread too thin.

Wtf?! I was really hoping to see another TFTB game and such. They were easy games to grind for gamerscore, and easy to pick up when you were bored. Wow... wishing the best for those laid off.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

It was all a big misunderstanding. Like a Three's Company episode.

 

It was my bad really. Should have known he was joking.

Thanks though. Appreciated.

that sucks. well at least they will get to finish TWD. Hope the people who were laid off are able to find jobs. I enjoyed a few of their games but eventually they started to feel too much of the same.



Are we still going to get seasons 2 and 3 of the walking dead released on switch?

I feel like they kinda dug their own graves by oversaturating the market with the kind of games they made and never really doing anything that was different enough beyond the story-focused adventure games. It's sad, but they really needed to change things around much more than they did over the years.
